  1. It will only count from the game after the defender reaches his targets.
  2. Typo in the midfielder section 🤦‍♂️ Fixed.
  3. I won’t be asking to see the replays put it that way Yes
  4. Yep, cup games aren’t worth anything. 38 games to get everything done and get some points in the bag
  5. Yes anywhere in the midfield strata is fine. They can play from when they are signed but they must be used for bonus points as they are a “direct replacement” for the player As above they must be played. Will add to clarifications.
  6. Week 7 - Challenge So after 6 weeks of competition we finally arrive at the final week and there’s still, *literally* everything to play for. 3/4 playoff spots are taken but anyone from 4th downwards can take the final space, throw in the battle for the top spot and it just screams excitement! I also hesitate to mention that over half of the participants involved can still finish rock bottom 😱 This shows how tight the competition has been this year. This challenge is a joint effort between myself and @Foxy so we hope you enjoy it, but please read everything carefully! Team Let’s get the basics out the way first. You have what is essentially freedom of choice, as you can choose any team from a major European league that has 38 games. This gives you the choice of any team from the top flight of the following countries: England Spain Italy France The Challenge This challenge is essentially a two-parter. There will be a set up phase, and a points scoring phase. That’s right this is the only week where you won’t be scoring points from the first match. Instead, you will have to choose 4 players from your starting squad. One keeper, one defender, one midfielder and one striker. They must be natural anywhere amongst their position; AMC is fine for a midfielder. This is the most important decision you will make in the whole challenge expect maybe for team selection. That is because each chosen player will have 3 targets they need to achieve to unlock their area of the pitch to score points. Until that player has achieved all 3 targets in league games you won’t be scoring any points. Once the targets have been achieved that player can start scoring you points, like so: GK - Once your goalkeeper has reached his targets, you will start receiving 3 points for every clean sheet. DF - Once your defender has reached his targets, you will start receiving points for goal difference. MF - Once your midfielder has reached his targets, you will start receiving 3 points for every assist your mid gets. ST - Once your striker has reached his targets, you will start receiving 3 points for every goal your striker scores. So once you unlocked an area of the pitch you can start scoring points. But as soon as your chosen player has done his job and set up the next stage, he must be demoted and never used again. For the points scoring phase he must be directly replaced by a free agent. These four potential free agents will be the only signings you are allowed to make. I understand this is a bit complicated so if you’re a bit confused please look at the spoiler for an example: It is league games only, cup games do not count for anything in this challenge. And finally, once/if all 12 targets are completed and every area of the pitch is unlocked, you will start receiving your league points as challenge points. So if all 4 of your nominated players have reached their targets by game 30 and you win all 8 of your remaining games you will receive a further 24 points. The Targets These are the all important targets your 4 nominated players will have to achieve before you can start scoring points from that position. Clarifications Any team from the top division of the countries given You can choose any GK, DF, MF and ST but they must be natural somewhere in their position You can buy your free agent “replacements” in advance if you wish but they are the only transfers that are allowed The replacements must also be natural in the replaced position The defensive replacements must play in order to receive bonus points You won’t receive any points until the position has been “unlocked”. From then on you will receive the points explained above League points will count once all 12 targets have been reached but just from that point, league points you have got before won’t count Cup games do not count for anything Tiebreak if needed will be quickest to achieve all 12 targets. Deadline - Sunday, 23rd February - 11:59 PM GMT Good luck everyone especially those battling for the final playoff place and enjoy. Maybe I might even not fuck up the results Rules and Screenshots Required
  7. The challenge this week is quite complex, the finishing touches are being put to it so it might be up tonight but if not definitely tomorrow. It’s guaranteed to produce an exciting climax to the season though!
  8. No you can’t play as reserve teams as they aren’t allowed to play in the same league as their first team. At least that’s the case in most countries so I can’t see why it would be any different in Germany.
  9. Yes whilst I didn’t participate I have been following it and it’s been a fun one to follow. Great work hosting @Kun Aguero
  10. Important An inexcusable error from myself but as I said before it’s lucky that the Smog - Bati game was the only one it affected. I have updated the results post with the correct league table and permutations but check the spoiler for the permutations, not much has changed. The final week’s challenge will be up tomorrow.
  11. You are right, I have absolutely no idea how I didn’t notice that. Thankfully the only game it affects is the match between you two. But that will change the table a bit. @BatiGoal will receive a 0 and the table will be updated accordingly this evening. Sorry everyone!
  12. Week 6 - Results So an absolutely pivotal week in the race for the playoffs has been and gone so let’s see what happened and whether any semi final spaces have been filled, and what there will be to play for in the final week. This week was all about keeping goals out, a stark contrast to what most are used to on vibe! @Kanegan v @Woody @Crashhart v @Mr Tree @Ian v @MikeF @BatiGoal v @smoggy90 Some big winners and losers this week, here’s the full list of scores: Well done to Ian, Bati and Crash who have all mathematically secured their places in the all important playoffs. Mike will join them with a win in the final week, but a slip up opens the door to the chasing pack of Smog, Tree, Woody and Kane who all they can do is win and hope for the best, but they are still in with a chance. Permutations: To win the league phase: Although it doesn’t win you the event outright it’s still very nice to be the competitor that’s topped the pile after the 7 weeks are over so let’s have a look at the permutations for that. @Ian - Will win the league phase with a win. @BatiGoal - Will need to win and hope that Ian loses to Woody, a bonus point win would see him take top spot if Ian fails to beat Woody @Crashhart - Needs to win and hope that Ian and Bati both fail to win. Playoffs: There’s one playoff spot up for grabs. @MikeF - A win over Smoggy and he will qualify. Failing to win opens the door for the chasing pack. Lose and he won’t qualify. @smoggy90 - A win over Mike and he will qualify unless Tree or Woody win with a bonus point. Bonus point win will see him qualify but a draw won’t be enough. @Mr Tree - Needs to beat Bati and hope Mike and Smoggy draw their match. A bonus point win will see him qualify if Mike fails to beat Smoggy. @Woody - Needs to beat Ian to have any chance of qualifying and hope 2 other results go his way. @Kanegan - Needs to beat Crash with a bonus point and hope 3 other results go his way. Remember if two managers are level on points, it first goes to the result of the match between the two, and if that was a draw then overall points accumulated throughout the competition. Everyone’s total points can be found below: And finally the fixtures for the final week.
  13. All scores are in and the results will be up this afternoon.
  14. Game set and match I think and the all important “surge” from @Foxy in the last 5 holes has won it for him.
  15. 1 defeat in 13 7 wins in the last 9 6 goals conceded in 13 games Fair fucking play Parky no-one saw this coming. 8 year contract please. First time this season I have actually thought we have a chance of getting promoted
  16. It’s bad news for the rest of the Premier League not for Man City... No European distractions for two years! Here’s one from the opposite end.
  17. @Mr Tree just send the fixture list and I can work the points out from there.
  18. Nice one mate. Nothing like taking a minnow right to the top.
  19. Welcome back to another preview and after a 4th hole in a row that produced a result it was Foxy who regained his 2 hole lead. Ian has only won 1 of the last 9 holes which will be worrying for him as he will need to win 3 of the last 5 challenges to overhaul his opponent or 2 to take us into a playoff situation. It’s a big ask and the bookies don’t give him much chance but can he prove his doubters wrong? Overall Odds @Foxy - 1/8 @Ian - 13/2 Hole 14 will be a tough one for Ian to make any ground back as although it’s not the toughest of challenges you’d expect these two to be quite closely matched on this one. Foxy has the form books on his side and although the halve will be a comfortable favourite here if anyone is likely to snatch it it’ll probably be the Gloucestershire Gladiator. The start of a very important run of challenges for Ian and he quite simply cannot afford to lose this one. Hole 14 Odds (Chinese Fir) @Foxy - 5/2 Hole Halved - 4/9 @Ian - 3/1
  20. I am about to present to you all some deeply shocking news, something that has not only rocked me to the core but is simply about to send shockwaves through the whole of vibe, so much so don’t be surprised if it crashes. Please don’t open the spoiler if you have a heart condition, are pregnant or don’t cope well with sudden surprises.
  21. Scoring With Pensioners Challenge All credit to @Peely for creating this challenge. This is a twist on the most popular challenge on Vibe, based around my strange fascination with the more mature goal-hangers in the game. It's the 1k Challenge, but not as you know it. Instead of picking a promising youngster and guiding them to a decuple century of goals over many years, you have to hit the 1k mark by making use of a succession of elderly strikers. The Challenge You can start at any club (not one created with "My Club", though). In the first season you need to select a striker who is at least 34 years old and get them to score as many goals as possible. At the end of the season you pack them off to the retirement home and bring in another doddery old gent, who will be your striker for the next season. You continue like this until you score 1,000 goals or are forced to retire in disgrace after 30 seasons. The Rules No unlockables allowed, except those you unlock during the save. You can only use your own tactics. You can only use players who are 34 or over. They don't have to be natural strikers, but you have to play them as a forward. In the unlikely event of there being no players available over the age of 34, you can either throw in the towel or play on until one becomes available. Each striker can only be at your club for one season - no stocking up on strikers in advance or keeping them around afterwards. You can use a player who has been part of your team earlier in the save provided they have not been at your club for at least five seasons prior to their season as your "chosen one". No cheating (i.e. reloading to avoid injuries, replaying matches etc.) No text changes, use of the save editor or pre-editor. International goals do not count. Either match engine is allowed, but I suspect it will be much, much harder using the enhanced engine. With thirty seasons to work with, this should be easily achievable (at least on the original engine), but bear in mind that players tend to retire relativelyearly if not under human management, so the supply of good strikers maydwindle as the years go by. The thing that appeals to me about doing the challenge in this way is that you're free to move around from club to club and league to league, withouthaving to worry about taking a player with you or the reputation of the club you go to. As long as you can find an old enough striker each season, you could move every year, going from the depths of the Skrill North to the top of La Liga over the course of your career. In the end this may be more of an endurance challenge than anything else, but hopefully the scope for variety will keep things entertaining enough to keep people going.
